Stone Barns Farmers Market

I have been meaning to get up to Stone Barns for a while now. Last month I saw on their website that they have a farmer's market on Wed. and Fri. We have been away a lot however, so haven't had the time. I finally made it up today and it was very nice!

First off, the members get to go an hour before hand, it started at 1pm for non-members and although I got in line (yes there was a line) at 1pm exactly, all the herbs were already gone. The salad mix was gone too. I was able to get a dozen eggs which I plan on doing something with tomorrow.
I bought Swiss chard which for dinner tonight I sauteed with some garlic, white beans and rosemary (fresh picked from my herb box). This was very good. I also got some tomatoes. The one I had at lunch (green zebra heirloom) was easily the best i've had all summer! I also got a bunch of "mixed asian greens" that I also tried at lunch once I got home and they were sooo good.
I went to the cafe but at this point my teething cutie patootie (aka lil sweetpea) was getting cranky so I opted for an iced latte to hold me over. This was one of the best iced lattes I have EVER had! All in all it was a nice drive up, took me 20 min. from Bronxville and would also be easily accessible from South-West CT or anywhere in lower Westchester.
For anyone with kids, they also let you tour the grounds and see the animals. If my dd were a little older we would have done that, but I think we'll save it for next time. Ohh, and people brought their dogs to walk the grounds as well. I think next time my husband needs to come and we can bring our "Romeo". Since he is a pug, he needs to wait until it is a little cooler though!
